Global Healthcare Disinfectant And Sanitizers Market Segmentation
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by product, end-users, form, composition, geography. Closely related to sanitizers and hand rubs, disinfectants are primarily used to kill microorganisms from hands while performing surgeries. As the knowledge of hygiene and safety measures is expected to increase in the coming years on account of the breakout of COVID, the worldwide disinfectant demand is likely to expand considerably. The number of antiseptic decontaminating healthcare environments and reusable, non-invasive care equipment (NICE) has increased notably in recent years, which is influencing the market growth.
In 2020, the liquid segment accounted for the maximum market share of the global healthcare disinfectants and sanitizers industry as the majority of commercial medical-grade disinfectants are in the liquid form. Also, decontamination and fumigation in healthcare settings are usually accomplished by the use of liquid disinfectants. Currently, disinfectants, which contain peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide, have proven as an effective option among healthcare settings, thereby gaining widespread application.
The alcohol-based segment accounted for over 89% of the global healthcare disinfectant and sanitizers market share in 2020, and it is likely to retain its market dominance during the forecast period. As alcohol-based sanitizers are proven highly effective in destroying a range of pathogens without the need for water, plumbing, and drying facilities, the demand is significantly high. Thus, alcohol-based sanitizers are considered highly effective for repeated use in healthcare settings.
The COVID-19 pandemic has a positive effect on the healthcare disinfectants and sanitizers market share. Due to high survival chances of the coronavirus in the medical care environment, hospital premises, which include ICUs, operation theaters, and medical devices, need to be disinfected to prevent contamination. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has increased hospital admissions significantly, which has driven the high usage of disinfectants and sanitizers. Moreover, the rise in the aging population and the increasing pool of patient population with chronic disorders are the major factors driving the growth of the hospital segment.
